Hardly anyone in the UK makes decent electronic music so Ableton decided you guys would get yours last.

I guess if you consider Richard D. James to be "incredible IDM." :lol: Ok. I'm done trolling. We do have a couple decent people here in America though.

Okay, got another mail: Apparently there have been issues. :?

I suggested to pass the information directly to all the waiting customers without having them asking one by one, but maybe it's just me and all the others don't care anyway.

Don't know, but I guess more information would not help either... can be anything from strike to technical problems or problems with a supplier - whatever.

My frustation came from this "oh we silently changed your shipping date to later, maybe you won't notice" attitude.

I feel your pain. I've dealt with that from Guitar Center in the past and it's wildly frustrating. By the time I got my product much of my enthusiasm had worn off. That can be a good thing though.

The straight skinny from Guitar Center is week of 6/21.

I cashed in on their 15% off sale (CODE: MEMDAY) and saved about $100. They also don't charge you until it ships. Ordered yesterday and called today to confirm charge on my card was just Pre-Authorization. They said it was and while Push is obviously in high demand they said Ableton has been solid with them about a 6/21 date. Many coming early actually around 5/28 but mine and I assume MOST OF OURS will be on the 6/28 bus to Guitar Center HQ.

So 4 weeks. Ableton site still shows 8-12 weeks.

Not sure if this helps anyone. Saving $100 n' all. Musiciansfriend.com has the same deal. set for 6/28 ship date tho.

Heh. Be careful with Guitar Center. If they were "sold out" when you ordered from them it may mean that they have sold out the pre-orders. I got mine a long time before everyone else but I wasn't in the first string of pre-orders.

Agreed but after this amount of time think there really is an obligation to an explanation. I heard the "issues" were Akai are building for some other (larger) customer and hence Ableton fulfillment got delayed. Even so, somebody must have a schedule - surely?

You're absolutely right. Some more details would be great even if knowing them does not change the shipping date. But maybe providing this information is not possible due to their contract... who knows. I tried my best to find out what went wrong there and put even more effort in making them understand that we really want to know what's going on without having to ask all the time.

Not a big surprise considering how long we have been waiting.
Yes, it's longer than the preorder to shipping for us, but I would have been more surprised if you had been told that you would get one in July/August.
